As humans we are on a never ending quest to relate to each other. It’s one of our best universal qualities. Sympathy. Empathy. Walk a mile in their shoes. We have words for all of it. It is this unyielding empathy that makes literature, and the characters in the stories that we tell, so important. When we relate to a character on the page, we may open up more to characters like that in our lives. We may even open up more to parts of ourselves that we previously shied away from. It is with...

“You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book.” - Dr. Seuss It’s been a while since I felt the magic and wonder in my life that I felt regularly as a child. Luckily for me, in my adult years, I’ve learned that Dr. Seuss is right. All you need to suddenly be in a place where magic and mystery are still alive and well is a book. Luckily for them, many children realize that you don’t have to wait until you’re a boring old adult to have this epiphany. Today...

Metaphysical Cleanse (with Stephanie Kato)

Humans are some pretty complicated organisms. We have a body, mind, and spirit all wrapped into one package. Each needs it’s own nurturing and care, and the health of each will influence the other two. Yet even knowing this, we are often “too busy” to really care for ourselves the way we know we should. We may go to the gym and see how the time that we give to our bodies also helps pacify our minds, but how often do we try to work the other way around? Today’s guest, Stephanie Kato, is a...

What goes into your mouth usually matters quite a bit more than what comes out. Food allergies, Celiac, IBS, cancer, Alzheimer's, depression; things that impact us physically, mentally, and emotionally all seem to be on the rise. And yet do a quick google search and you can find someone that has fought every one of these things with changes to their diet. With stakes like these, and general energy and happiness levels in play for all of us, it’s a wonder that more of us don’t track our...

Language is unquestionably the most important revelation that occurred throughout human history. An easy way to explain a complicated idea to someone. A quick way to let someone know how you feel. A means to prevent conflict and allow us to settle our differences in a more civilized manner. Despite it’s importance, we don’t really pay it much attention from day to day. We just walk around, using our language of choice, not considering how that language came to be. Today we learn about one...

I want you to think about the difficult decisions you’ve made in your life. More specifically, I want you to think about the tough conversations you’ve had to have about these decisions. Maybe telling your parents that you’re moving out? Dropping out of school to pursue your dream? How about telling your significant other, “You know that large amount of student debt I accumulated to become a lawyer? Well, I decided I’m going to stop practicing law and start baking pies for a living...

What is yoga? Is the answer a simple one about exercise or is it a complex one about philosophy and awareness? After today’s interview I have a feeling that if you asked 10 different people you may get 10 different answers. Christie Rafanan is an amazing yoga teacher in San Francisco, and a good friend of mine. We’ll dive into that many layered question trying to define yoga and hear about how it transformed Christie’s life.

What do you think of when you think of the word therapy? Therapist? Most of us think of traditional psychotherapy, talking through your life and problems with someone. Using your head to fix your head. However, many people and cultures throughout history have placed an equal, if not greater, focus on the body as a means to mental health. Surrounding yourself with nature, exercising, playing, these are all things that can have a massive impact on your mental state. In fact, it’s so...

Do you believe in ghosts? Like religion, your belief in the paranormal can really be swayed by the culture you belong to. For some reason in America we don’t really embrace the idea of ghosts, and yet over 80 percent of our population believes in the afterlife. Today’s guest, Craig Owens, is a talented photographer and, like many people, used to be ghost-agnositc. Then, one day Craig was doing a vintage photo shoot at a supposedly haunted hotel, and he experienced paranormal phenomena...

How we feel as we enter a space is a pretty complex thing. Smells, sounds, spacing, art, furniture, plants, lighting - it all melds together in our minds to make us feel a certain way. Do we feel relaxed, energized, uneasy? The interesting thing is, most of us won’t even know why we feel a certain way in a home or building, we’ll just feel that way. Today’s guest is a trained interior designer, which means that it’s her job to create a space that not only looks appealing, but one that...

Growing up and making your way in the world can be hard. That’s kind of what this show is about, see what people choose to do as they forge their path in this world. Most of us, and nearly every person I’ve had on this show, choose a path that has been walked by someone before us. That doesn’t change the fact that we need to be brave to do it, might have to leave something behind to pursue it, and need to give a lot of ourselves to succeed. It just means that we got the idea to walk down...

The landscape of marijuana in the United States (and many other areas of the world) is changing. Thanks to that changing landscape it is not only not as taboo as it used to be, it’s also a possibly serious, legal business venture to get started with. Despite the shift it’s still a great place to make a lot of money depending on where you live. Today’s guest, Alex, manages a full scale weed growing operation in Los Angeles.
